english doesnt seem to have much technical players. neither do they have a creative player that can give a defence splitting pass. combined that with their "england mentaliy"; (attack means crossing from flanks or gerrard/lampard anyhow whack from outside box) how to win? so predictable?!?!?!
unless the eng team can change their way of attacking, eng will struggle. but then again, i cant imagine england attacking through the centre, they just dun have the players with the ability to do that.
issit time to change the whole english youth system and train the players in a different way? why does all the eng players seems so "ordinary"? the only english player tat has hope, i would say is joe cole.
all the best 3 lions
For goodness sake, why u want to bring back Robbie Fowler ?
There are so many forwards to consider.
Andy Johnson, Dean Ashton ( A player who I always buy when playing CM Cheap and Good), Jemaine Defoe, theo walcot. Darrent Bent is strong, and good in the air. Much better than the beanpole crouch. Tat guy can't even score at club level regularly, his goals scored are all against lowly ranked countries. I cant forsee him scoring against a defence tight Italian team
Rooney is a child. Reminisce of the young beckham but a uglier verison.
Robinson would have done beter to try and control the ball first instead of taking wild swing at it.
Anyway, this makes a good training video for my son, who is keen to play goalie...or will he still be after watching it?
The youth system is that they all went to the Academies snice young, so many clubs with academy thus resulting in what they are nowadays. No Creativity No style!!!
Best is to demolish the Academies n change all to futsul or street soccer style to help them with their creative n soon we will see alot more defence spliting passes
Good examples of street soccer styles would be Henry (Arsenal) & Ronaldino (Barca).
Henry's portfolio of goals is ridiculous and amazing, one would wonder wtf the goalies was doing. Goals from all sorts of angles, between legs of goalie, backheel, loop over, screamer from dunno how many yards away, unusual penalty kicks, freekicks, *Quick freekicks (haha always remember the one chelsea kenna, quick thinking from henry. I was laughing my head off went it flew past the stationary Petr Cech and into goal)
Ronaldino: His dribbling skills tells it all.
alonso make good passes with his vision etc, but i think gerrard is only good at distributing, not passes that break the defence...
and which XYZ manager will loudly declare that he is going to use the 3-5-2 formation before the match and letting the opponent know how to counter them?
eat. drink. shoot
Beckham is missed.Its time to bring him back in.
The first loss is a sooner or later thing.Plus we do know that the three Lions dont fail to disappoint.

Holland 1 England 1 Leading at half time! http://soccernet.espn.go.com/report?id=195576&cc=5739
Once again proven england is not capable of international level!
only consulation is Rooney ended his international goal draught! Since netting in the win over Argentina, Rooney had waited 12 months to score his 12th England goal.
